Congressmen like Mark Sanford who sleep
in their offices? ´It´s almost nasty,´ critics say

Post & Courier [Charleston, SC], by Schuyler Kropf

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 3/7/2018 8:26:57 AM

Congressmen who sleep in their D.C. offices — including Republicans from South Carolina — are under fire once again from Democrats irked over where they put their heads at night. The bunking habit, they contend, is both an abuse of taxpayer funds and, as one Mississippi Democrat termed it, "almost nasty." A letter from more than two dozen members of the Congressional Black Caucus, including South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, is asking for an ethics review into the "legality and propriety" of members using their offices as overnight apartments. U.S. Reps. Mark Sanford, R-Mount Pleasant; Trey Gowdy, R-Spartanburg; and Jeff Duncan, R-Laurens, are

No big deal. Those people only work two days out of the week. So they are only there one night. And look how much less traffic there is

Where were these “sainted CBC” when one of their own was chasing skirts? The solution for this is for the Congressional members and senators remain in their districts and conduct their business via video conference.

Having to maintain two residences - one in your home state and another in DC is ridiculous. The states should own the houses for their Senators and Congressmen.

For example: A state could own a condo complex complete with security control and meeting rooms. The state could run a limo service for their state reps.

That way it becomes more viable for the non-wealthy who would like to serve one term and then go back to their previous job. Our leaders would be less embedded in DC and more connected with the needs of their state. When my company sends me out of town to do work for them they pay for where I stay.

And of course repeal the 17th amendment and have the Senators appointed by the state´s legislature as was the initial design. The end result of the 17th amendment was to give the MSM a large influence over who gets elected Senator.

Take one of the numerous vacant buildings in DC and convert it into a dorm, with a working kitchen and lounge downstairs. Communal bathroom. Women on one floor, men on the other. Problem solved.

They might even get more work done if they all have to live together.

An anagram of dormitory is "dirty room," and it might be argued that an office that is both worked in and lived in might be dirtier, at least before regular clean up, which is what all civilized people do anyway. There´s nothing wrong with a no frills lifestyle. Simplicity.

But why all the fuss? Rents as well as crime rates in the federal district are high, and congressmen neither make a great deal of money nor can afford extra security. A congressional office building would have to be one of the most secure places on the planet. No rent for a serving congressman. Then Uber to Reagan Airport for the commercial flight back home to South Carolina. I can see no reason to criticize Rep. Sanford. If that´s what he wants, who´s going to try to stop him?

Why should the liberal and socialist Democrat congressional black caucus give a crap if Republican members of congress snooze the night away in their offices, as that is no skin of the teeth of congressional black caucus members. Nobody else cares, but then again the congressional black caucus may be able to make a political issue out of their "concern" to a percentage of their very low information voting constituencies.

COLUMBIA, SC Inside an S.C. state prison, it is possible for an inmate using an illegal cellphone to get on the internet´s "dark web," run a thriving drug ring and plot to send a bomb by the U.S. mail. In U.S. District Court in Columbia this week, witness after witness — including FBI domestic terrorism and internet and explosives experts — testified just how easy it was for convicted killer Michael Young, 32, to do all those things from his cell at the Broad River Road complex near Irmo.

WASHINGTON - A long-awaited U.S. Justice Department internal watchdog report on former FBI chief James Comey’s public disclosures on Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state and whether FBI employees leaked information to try to hurt her 2016 presidential bid is expected to be issued next month. The report from Michael Horowitz, the department’s inspector general, arises from an investigation he launched about a week before Republican President Donald Trump, who defeated Democrat Clinton in the election, took office in January 2017.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has blamed Soros, a Hungarian-born U.S. financier, for a host of ills and pushed through legislation cracking down on non-governmental organizations called the “Stop Soros” laws which drew international criticism.

WASHINGTON - The Trump administration rolled out a long-awaited overhaul of U.S. arms export policy on Thursday aimed at expanding sales to allies, saying it will bolster the American defense industry and create jobs at home. The White House aims to speed up arms deal approvals and increase the role of senior U.S. officials, including President Donald Trump, in closing foreign sales, while giving greater weight to business interests in sales decisions that have long prioritized human rights. The initiative, as first reported by Reuters, adds the full weight of government to Trump’s direct personal role in pushing arms sales during

Mrs May urged Commonwealth leaders gathered in London to follow the UK’s example in tackling the problem. She said: “Plastic waste is one of

A magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck Iran´s southern province of Bushehr which is home to a nuclear power plant on Thursday. State television reported the earthquake around 10am local time saying the epicentre was close to the town of Kaki in a sparsely populated area. The epicenter is also 60 miles away from the Bushehr nuclear power plant. There was no damage to the plant, state reports said, and no immediate reports of damage or casualties elsewhere. Bushehr, the country´s only operating nuclear plant, has survived earthquakes in the past, and was built to withstand tremors in earthquake-prone Iran. The semi-official Tasnim news agency said

First Lady Melania Trump has not graced the cover of a single magazine in the United States since her husband took office over a year ago.

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B. Comey, President Trump and the Russia investigation, and they must be looked at side by side to fully grasp their collective importance. Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks
